Benenson Plaza Dedication

Carole HaberOver the last several years, we have worked to make the inside of Newcomb Hall a more inviting and usable space for students and faculty alike. From the historic pictures that grace the walls through
the smart rooms that provide 21st-century instruction, the building
has come to resemble the treasure that it is. With the completion of Benenson Plaza, we have now put in place the jewel in that crown.
The plaza provides a grand entrance to the building as well as a wonderful stage for outdoor classes, reading, and conversation. We
are grateful for to the Benenson family for their support and vision throughout this important project.
